- A bucket or a tank
- Water (enough to fill the bucket or the tank)
- A can of Coke
- A can of Diet Coke
- A can of any other cola
HOW TO DO
Fill the bucket or tank with water.
Place the cans in the water, one by one, spread far apart.
The Diet Coke can floats above the other two cans.
WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN?
This happens because of the sugar content in both cans. The Coke can and the other cola can contain much more sugar, which adds to the weight and therefore they sink in the tank. The Diet Coke can contains very little sugar and therefore, it floats.
Do this experiment with Coke vs. diet Coke. You will find out what happens. Which one do you enjoy drinking more? As a rule, it is better to avoid colas. Natural liquids like water are better.
